Is this the correct place for UK Police checks? (Teaching)

    Howdy all.

     

    My Mrs is trying to get herself teaching over here and just got her qualifications OK'd by the TRB.

     

    We now need a UK Police Check carried out within the last 12 months. Her UK school that she left in July did one when she joined in 2001, but not since.

     

    I've tracked down this link - is it the correct one?

    If so - their "standard service" takes 2 weeks, everyone else has talked about police checks taking 40 days...... What gives?

     

    Hope you can help - thanks all

     

    Ryan.

    Hi, can't you use the police check you had to get for your visa......

     

    Didn't do one - we're on a 457 visa. Didn't do medicals either. Cheers.

    I did mine a little differently. I downloaded the form and sent it to Greater Manchester Police as this is where I last lived. I sent a cheque for 10 pounds (i still have a UK cheque book). It took 4 weeks to come back to me here in Adelaide. Theres an email address on my police check form if you need to get in touch with them for anything.

    Hi Ryan yep that is the correct link- the' police checks' schools use in UK are CRB checks- slightly difference and do take longer. She will need a proper police check by ACPO- good luck! Would love to know how she does at finding working as we are coming over in Jan
